The willow on our property provides so much inspiration at all times of the day… sunset.

Dusk… finding gratitude in the simplest things!



  1. Happy Sunday Laurie! My intention for this year is to look for the gift in every moment, there’s always a silver lining!


  2. Yes….just like a quote a saw recently…stop what you are doing and see the beauty that surrounds you right now. (the gist, anyway ;) ) I “try” to live in the NOW…it’s not as easy as it sounds! I love the quotes you posted too….very true and a good reminder!


    • It’s hard to live in the now, this moment, this time! We are so programmed to looking forward to, the next happening that right now gets a little ignored. It takes real concentration to change that thinking… it’s an ongoing exercise! ;) Thanks so much for stopping in! <3

  3. Makes me calmer just looking at your backyard — willows are so gorgeous! And, that light! I’m definitely in a rut this month, but would be much happier if I just accepted things as they are. Yes, it’s still snowy and crummy, but so much to be thankful for too. :)

    • I adore the willow, bordering on obsession! lol I am so glad we moved our studio upstairs and I can look at it when I need that little mental break! There really is so much right here and right now to be thankful for, it’s just a matter of switching the way we think. Something I am working on every day! xo

  4. I love these quotes on “Gratitude.” I think this is my word for this year. I think about it a lot. I have much to be thankful for.
